Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Bush, Iraq, Australia, APEC, OPEC And Kicking Ass ...

Bush, Iraq, Australia, APEC, OPEC And Kicking Ass ...


G'day, cobbers & sheilas.

Some messages sent straight from Oz, re: almighty APEC arseholes, effin' about and doing the dirty down under.



And surprise, surprise -- the biggest arsehole of them all (by far), puts his foot straight in it -- as always.

G.W. Bush, fresh from Iraq:"We're kicking ass," he told Mark Vaile on the tarmac after the Deputy Prime Minister inquired politely of the President's stopover in Iraq en route to Sydney.

G.W. Bush: More brain-dead blather: APEC, OPEC, SCHMOPEC ... whatever. Next year ... this year ... whenever ...

Our old selves: Goodgawdstrewth! Give us strength. The w*nker worsens by the week.


Sydney Morning Herald: Loudza lightest relighted reportz links.

Strewth, eh? Fair dinkum, dingos & possoms. Tie me kangaroo down, sports. Have a nice die, mites.

Messages ends, mites. That's all the Oz lingo what we know ow t'speak, mites.

WE're kicking ass? WE're ...?

The man never ceases to amaze. Talk about bathing in reflected glory. I hope he drowns in it.

Btw, Richard, if bluey's around might think you're taking the mickey out of him ..... and his MITES. :*]

Have you seen the blog Baghdad Burning?
http://riverbendblog.blogspot.com/

It's written by a woman from Iraq.

She just posted about what it was like to for her family to leave their home and most of their belongings because of this useless war.

We were all refugees- rich or poor. And refugees all look the same- there’s a unique expression you’ll find on their faces- relief, mixed with sorrow, tinged with apprehension. The faces almost all look the same.

The first minutes after passing the border were overwhelming. Overwhelming relief and overwhelming sadness… How is it that only a stretch of several kilometers and maybe twenty minutes, so firmly segregates life from death?

How is it that a border no one can see or touch stands between car bombs, militias, death squads and… peace, safety? It’s difficult to believe- even now. I sit here and write this and wonder why I can’t hear the explosions.

I wonder at how the windows don’t rattle as the planes pass overhead. I’m trying to rid myself of the expectation that armed people in black will break through the door and into our lives. I’m trying to let my eyes grow accustomed to streets free of road blocks, hummers and pictures of Muqtada and the rest…


A real person, unlike the Pretender-In-Chief.

Thanks for that, Moon Rattled. I used to follow her blog but lost track of her quite some time ago. I'm glad the young lady made it ok ~ ok being a relative term of course.

Good job we know ya well. ;-)

Btw, Bush does get worse. By the hour never mind the week, "mite"!

Bush doesn't know what day it is never mind anything else. He lives in a bubble. He only knows what he wants to know. And that's all he's told by others - and they know better than to tell him anything they know he doesn't want to hear.

As for accents Richard, maybe Tazmanian still looks in regularly too. And you know about them Tazmanian 'devils" don't you? Ha, ha. Watch out!

There is method in Bush's apparent madness. See:

"No one should have any doubt about President Bush's overriding operational objective. It is to hand over this war to his successor. In his own words: "I will not withdraw even if Laura and Barney [his dog] are the only ones supporting me." To this end he will do and say whatever is necessary. But at this point, the president's words hardly matter. Most Americans have concluded, correctly, that on Iraq, President Bush is simply no longer to be believed."

It's horrifying that in his own words he doesn't care a fig what the people of America think....Ye Gods! You couldn't make this up!
